Bomb blasts in Assam

When I decided to start this blog, I was clear that I will not put following in the blog at all

a) Politics
b) Religion

After the bomb blasts in Assam, I would not comment in this blog on the religion and politics of the bomb blasts, but would like to make another point.

The dumbing down of mainstream media.

When a few weeks ago, there were wide spread riots in which illegal Muslim settlers from Bangladesh attached Hindus, and killed 56 of them.

There were reports of Pakistani flag being hoisted:

And of course the Congress government denied all this.

And the "Secular" media conveniently ignored the news. This was waiting to happen.

The victims of riots are still living in refugee camps. But media has other incidents to highlight - like antics of Payal Rohtagi and Rahul Mahajan.

Is the Times of India and Hindustan Times been reduced to tabloids only.

Can we boycott these asinine "newspapers"
